100 years of Bauhaus: A reason to celebrate
In 2019 Germany celebrated this major Bauhaus anniversary. BRAIN, which has always been closely associated with Bauhaus architecture, contributed a video installation together with regional partners.
The "Bauhaus and the Bergstrasse" initiative arose from the conviction that art, culture, science and business are mutually inspiring. The city of Zwingenberg, the Kulturstiftung für die Bergstraße and BRAIN AG, with the kind support of the Hessian Ministry of Science and Art, the Sparkassen-Kulturstiftung Hessen-Thüringen, Sparkasse Bensheim, the energy provider GGEW and BRAIN AG had initiated a series of events that focused on the region and its creative potential.
There could be no better place to reflect the ethos of the Bauhaus movement than the building that houses the BRAIN complex, a listed industrial building that was the former site of the Fissan factory. Over three weekends, part of the biotechnology campus was transformed into a light installation – developed especially for this series of events by internationally renowned German artist Helga Griffiths. The illuminated artwork was flanked by musical events, discussions on architecture and art exhibitions on the company's campus and at other locations in Zwingenberg.
